The South African Muslims Network (Samnet) said on Monday that Deputy Minister Luwellyn Landers’s comment, “[We] shouldn’t be surprised if Boko Haram is operating in South Africa” stokes the dangerous flames of xenophobia, and needs to be treated with vigilant cynicism and utmost caution.

“Landers’s statements, which are unsubstantiated and have no proof [even by his own admittance], have already ignited internet forums with the kind of anti-foreign sentiments similar to those found scrawled on doors and placards during the 2008 xenophobic violence,” Samnet said in a statement.

According to their press release Samnet said his statements seek to divide not only Muslims, but all Africans.
